|"Stevensville River Park" 8x10 oil on panel|
I took off on Thursday and spent the night in St Regis. I camped in my van on a forest service road in the mountains that Darrell suggested ...Great spot! ....I parked right under a sign that warned the hunters to identify the type of bear before they shoot!..Made me a little nervous getting up in the middle of the night...
We were to meet at a grange in Stevensville on Friday night. Since there was a little time before the first gathering I decided to pre-funk the party and do some painting at a little park outside Stevensville on the Bitterroot river.
|Tree Reflections at Stevensville River Park|
As you can see by these pictures I was pretty jazzed to be in this amazing country with four days to do nothing but paint and be with others who love plein air painting too!
|White Tailed Deer|
A White Tailed Deer posed for the camera as I was scouting the loop trail for a painting spot.
Figuring that we would be painting the river a lot on this trip I set up for a woodsy painting......
Didn't paint the wild turkeys that wandered through this scene...but I may give the deer photo a try...=]
